Ten on Tuesday: 10 things to put in a salad

I assume these should be things I like? (And do I have to limit myself to ten? I do love my salad...)

1) fresh herbs (basil and dill, mostly, but sometimes tarragon, mint, or chives)
2) avocado
3) cucumbers
4) radishes
5) tomatoes
6) dried fruit (like Craisins)
7) toasted nuts
8) cheese (gorgonzola, feta, or tiny cubes of sharp cheddar)
9) croutons
10) celery

if I were to be allowed to continue, I would add

11) black beans (out of the can, rinsed and raised to room temperature)
12) carrots
13) lettuce (red leaf, Boston Bibb, arugula, endive...)
14) home-made salad dressing
15) heart-of-palm
16) baby potatoes, lightly boiled and sliced
17) corn
18) peas
19) pears
20) fresh blueberries

  1. Oh wow... just realized that I forgot to include cauliflower, roasted beets, and marinated artichoke hearts. I don't know what I was thinking!
